Skoda introduce SE Business Range
Range for Company Car Drivers
Skoda UK has launched its new SE Business range for company car drivers. There is now nineteen stylish variants to choose including the Skoda Octavia, Superb and Estate plus the Skoda Yeti Outdoor off road crossover model ranges. The SE Business line-up comprises a comprehensive package of state-of-the-art technology and safety equipment for added driver practicality and comfort. An ‘Amundsen’ touchscreen satellite navigation system with DAB radio, Bluetooth®, dual zone air conditioning and cruise control all feature as standard, as do ESP, driver and passenger airbags and ABS.
Patrick McGillycuddy, Head of Fleet at Skoda UK said “the SE Business range is the first Skoda line-up tailored specifically to the diverse requirements of today’s company car drivers. These new ‘business models’ are a highly competitive proposition that deliver low whole life and running costs and a small BiK taxation liability, without the need for corporate customers to compromise on their reduced carbon footprint. As with every Skoda vehicle, the SE Business range also prides itself on exceptional practicality, space, technology and performance.”
Four SE Business cars exempt from VED
Fleet drivers also benefit from reduced running costs thanks to an innovative stop/start system and low rolling resistance tyres married with Skoda’s highly-efficient 1.6 and 2.0-litre TDI CR DPF diesel engines. These include the frugal GreenLine II and III powerplants which deliver CO2 emissions as low as 85g/km with an impressive combined fuel consumption to match at 88.3 mpg. This means that Benefit in Kind tax rates start from 14%, and four SE Business cars are exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty (VED).
The Skoda SE Business range is further reinforced by Skoda’s coveted customer service and support from a dedicated nationwide network of fleet specialists and Business Centres. This is complemented by a three-year Europe-wide roadside assistance programme and 60,000 mile vehicle warranty.
Skoda launched the ‘3 Big Reasons’ Campaign last year and have recently extended the campaign. Low monthly payments plus 0% APR and 3 years service package are included in the package and there are now flexibility as the offers now vary by model. Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for Skoda UK said “we’ve had an excellent start to 2014 with demand for our new cars as strong as ever. These appealing offers will only reinforce Skoda’s reputation for offering exceptional value for money.”
